HTC has the One Mini, Samsung has the Galaxy S4 Mini, Sony has the Xperia Z1 Compact… but what about LG? Is it possible that the second biggest Korean smartphone maker will be the only one of the big names not to launch a ‘mini’ version of its flagship?
Apparently not. Back in December we first heard that a G2 Mini was in development, and then CES seemed like a good avenue in which to introduce it. The Las Vegas show came and went, though, with no official word on the G2 Mini. So maybe LG will use MWC for the announcement, since that’s taking place later this month.
This hypothesis gets more realistic when you consider that, according to Ameblo, the Bluetooth SIG has just certified the G2 Mini. The mini flagship goes by the model number D620, and unfortunately it looks like it will come with a pretty disappointing screen resolution. Emulating the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini (which itself is nothing more than a midranger in terms of specs), the LG G2 Mini will sport 540×960 resolution.
Its display size is still unknown, but this comes to contradict past mumblings that spoke about a 4.7-inch HD panel. We don’t know much more about the handset yet, but we do know that it runs Android 4.4 KitKat and that it has Bluetooth 4.0 and 4G LTE support.
If it will be unveiled at MWC at the end of February, then we expect to get all the missing details very soon. So stay tuned for that.
